First things first;  the perfect man cave to you may not be perfect to others. We’re going to make our suggestions based on what would be some cool stuff to put into a poker-themed man cave. The following suggestions are based on our experiences playing poker at way too many places from California to New York.

The man caves we have had the privilege of being invited to range from tiny rooms to large open spaces that could fit several poker tables as well as maybe a craps table, a pool table, and even a full bar. Therefore, rather than dictate the perfect design for yours, over the next few days we’ll just give you a few insights as to how to furnish your perfect man cave.

First and foremost for any poker-themed room would, of course, be the perfect table, and that would obviously depend on your budget. So, we’ll begin today with some ideas for a medium- budget room:

The Lumen Poker Table

The Lumen Poker Table, priced at just under $1,999, is a kidney-bean shaped table with 11 positions (10 players + a dealer). It has integrated LED lighting, cup holders, Napa pedestal legs, and can be fully customized with your own graphics. Great table perfect for that medium-end budget.

Deser Heat 1000 count chip set

Then, of course, you’ll need some poker chips. The perfect set for this set-up,  the 1000 count Claysmith “Desert Heat” chip set in an aluminum case, comes in at just slightly more than $205.94, and it even includes a dealer button and three decks of cards.

You can then decorate your room, again depending on your budget, with a large screen TV, maybe a few poker signs, a cool sound system to play your favorite tunes, a bar with a mini fridge, and you’re ready to host some friendly poker games.

There are various kinds of poker tables available in the market and choosing the right poker table for your game room is important. There are folding poker tables that are excellent for the casual home or office games, and there is a variety of table tops that are easy to store away in your closet or take with you on trips. And, of course, there are the professional poker tables that would fit in the best game room in your house, office, ManCave, or poker room.

First thing you need to decide is what kind of table you want. Choose a permanent piece of furniture like a 101.5 inch Lumen Poker table (pictured below) or our Ultimate Poker Table Jr., an 82 inch portable table that you can fold up and store or carry away. You can also choose from standard casino style tables to octagonal folding tables or table tops and with different color felts, with the most popular being green – but they also come in red, black or blue felts to complement your décor. If you take your game seriously then your poker table needs to be a comfortable place for your friends to gather and play for hours. Choose wisely and have fun. And don’t forget, all our tables can be customized with your logo, name, or just about any graphic you would like.

Normally I like to write my blogs about poker-related topics that interest me, and thus, hopefully, interest some of you as well. An exciting tournament (like the WSOP), a favorite poker super- star, a new poker movie, poker legislation and of course the Global Poker League have been featured among my numerous blog posts.

But every once in a while, I have to stop and remind myself what the Texas Poker Store is REALLY about. Because despite the value added by our (almost famous) TPS Blog, along with the bios and video clips of the great poker legends, the Texas Poker Store is about selling quality poker supplies at competitive prices and providing outstanding customer service to our customers. Yup, that’s right. It’s an online store, and like every other store, it’s about cutting a great deal for all the poker players out there . . .  as well as for us. With that in mind, I’m breaking with tradition in order to show you some of our best-selling poker tables. Who knows. . . they just might inspire you to become one of our many loyal fans and satisfied customers.

Currently our most popular table is our “Lumen” kidney shaped, 101.5 inches x 46 inches, 10 players plus dealer positions.
